As if I needed one more thing on my plate this fall, I agreed to teach a ladies Bible study on Wednesday mornings. This is so not the first time in my life that I thought, “Oh, I can handle that” on top of about a million other things.
Judging by my Facebook newsfeed, October has definitely been the season for celebrating Grandparents’ Day in every school across the South.
Charles and I have a blended and prolific tribe of 13 grandchildren, but it seems the older ones have outgrown that ritual.
Twitter World was on fire last week.

I do not in my heart of hearts believe that the majority of Americans are represented by the tweeters, but I find it interesting to scroll through the comments from time to time.
I confess to being a huge fan of the BBC Masterpiece series, Downton Abbey. I own the complete set of six seasons in DVD, and I have watched them through twice.

It has been a lot of fun, and I have been able to hear from likeminded grandmothers. I am not alone in my concern over the out-of-control culture.
